The name Amarok originates from the language of
the Inuit, the aboriginal inhabitants of the Arctic
region of central and north-eastern Canada as well
as Greenland. It means an enormous wolf from Inuit
mythology, which is a solitary night-time hunter.
In Latin based terms, the name is also associated with
the literal meaning "he loves the rocks".
The name Amarok is associated with:
- Durability and toughness
- Successful capability of robustness and intelligent technology
The Amarok has a sturdy ladder frame, two versions of which are produced for the layout with single or double cab. Both versions differ in terms of the side impact protection as well as the number and location of mounting points for the loadbed (cargo box) and the cab body. This means the loadspace is connected to the frame structure independently from the cab.
The engine mounts and the connections for the suspension links are welded onto the frame. No high and ultra-high strength steels are used for constructing the frame, meaning that repairs to the frame can be carried out in accordance with the applicable repair instructions using a metal active gas welding system (CO2 welding).
